Re: Weapon Ranges and Gamestyles

Are current rules works? Well, they do. They would work even if you make lasgun range 20 m. Or 10 m. Or close combat only. So yes, I don't defend changings in the rules because current ones "don't work". They're not crumbling mechanically. This is simply not correct. The rules would not w...

Re: Weapon Ranges and Gamestyles

On tabletop a character who is rushing to a Imperial Guardsmen with a lasgun would take at least three ranged attacks, if he's lucky. It's two tabletop rounds, 1 attack on first, 2 attacks on second. Oh, yes, it's also overwatch attack. Four attacks. In W&G, where you can make only 1 ranged att...

Re: Weapon Ranges and Gamestyles

I'm sorry as well, but your evidence is "I feel like melee characters would be useless". Yes, in a plain field without any means to close to your enemy through killzone they would, and they should be , that's my very point. It's not a bug, it's a feature. You want your melee characters to...

Re: Weapon Ranges and Gamestyles

Take a jump pack - which is a common piece of equipment for melee characters on tabletop. You'll take 24 m per round (6*2*2), through two Pilot tests. So in two rounds you'll cover 48 m, which is Lasgun range. With the W&G rules, Jump Packs don't turn up before tier 4. So it's not really a solu...

Re: Weapon Ranges and Gamestyles

For me it's an issue of fun at the table and emulating the setting. When I think 40k, I don't just think "ranged weapons". In fact, probably the iconic character is a marine with a boltgun and chainsword. Look across the models on a 40k table, or those portrayed in the fiction. The setting...

Re: Errata/Faq thread

However, I should make one thing clear - we have lore (fluff) and we have the actual game mechanics (crunch). These are not the same thing, actually. And going per Ulisses Spiele's staff official response, the weapons ranges were made as they were for gameplay reasons only . Well, yes. This is kind...

Re: Errata/Faq thread

Ha ha ha, yes, basically, though your numbers are actually a little low. It's a Deathwatch game, so I started them at tier 4 (rank 1). I'm not sure what you mean by "Pool", but if you mean attack/dice pool size, then yes, most of the pools were in the 12-16 dice range. Ahm... So you attac...

Re: Errata/Faq thread

Well, actually fluff(lore)-wise most Imperial Guards's sergeants and officers (the ones expected to actually fight in the field) are arming themselves with the same lasguns as rank-and-file soldiers do. I have never seen this portrayed in the lore. It's certainly possible there are some cases, but ...

Re: Errata/Faq thread

I'm not comfortable with artificially shortening the combat ranges to make it easier for Melee characters. That renders characters designed for ranged combat much weaker than they should be! Actually, it doesn't. With the rules as they stand, ranged and melee characters are balanced. By doubling th...

Re: Errata/Faq thread

I'm intrigued, can you elaborate on their tier, pools and gear? Out of nowhere I would assume Tier 3, Pool 12, Bolter, Rank 1. So quite possible. Ok assessment finished, I'm out. Ha ha ha, yes, basically, though your numbers are actually a little low. It's a Deathwatch game, so I started them at ti...
